Neil, if you see the pics from inside my workshop, you should be able to catch a glimpse of my spray booth. It's only 14' x 10' x 8', so I can't get my boat in it, but I can easily fit all the parts I make before installing.

water pump gasket

To keep the paper thin water pump gasket in place while installing the screws I use small binder clips to hold the gasket on the front plate. Once the screws are started I can remove the clips and finish the job. Saves me from a lot of frustration.

Jim, good idea with the clips and sometimes a smear of grease will do the same thing.

If you have to remove a machine screw that's really tight: Carefully seat the driver on the screw heat (always use a drive that fits!), then give the end of the driver a couple of whacks with a mallet or hammer, or field expedient (wrench, channel locks, etc.) This will often do the trick.
